All Persimmon Trees are NOT created equal. Many nurseries grow persimmons from seed. These trees will look good, but will take 6-9 years to start fruiting. Even worse, they will likely cross-pollinate with other varieties, giving you a "Mutt", not a true Fuyu. So their customers can wait up to 9 years to discover they have bad tasting fruit.

We take cuttings from a Fuyu mother tree, proven to make great tasting fruit. We graft that on to a hardy root stock. The result: you get a tree that thinks it's mature and will start producing almost immediately. You're also ensured that you'll get great tasting fruit just like the mother tree.

Our grafting process has been proven for hundreds of years. It's all natural, non-GMO and is used for most commercial persimmon orchards. It is difficult and time consuming to graft persimmons, which is why many nurseries don't do it. But the difference for you is huge.

Your Fuyu persimmons are sweet and non-astringent. So you don't have to set them out for weeks, waiting for them to ripen. You can eat them right off the tree, like a sweet apple. Fuyu is the most popular persimmon in the world, accounting for 80% of the market.

A mature Persimmon tree can produce over 300 lbs of fruit. Your Persimmons will typically start to ripen in September and can stay on the tree through the end of the year. Fuyu can then store for months It's a favorite of many "Preppers".

This is about the easiest fruit tree you can plant. Fast growing. Naturally pest and disease resistant. Tolerates a wide variety of soils and climates. Drought tolerant, once established. In fact it has a long tap root that searches out its own water source. Basically you just plant, then pick.

Your tree is self-pollinating, which means it can fruit all by itself. However, it will produce more fruit with a second Fuyu to cross-pollinate with. Some of our customers, with small yards, will plant two trees in the same hole. This gives them cross-pollination and a large amount of fruit from a small space.

Some nurseries advertise a tall height, then chop 1/3rd off. This reduces their shipping cost, but leaves you with a stick that is shorter than you paid for. We prune your tree throughout its life... not just before shipping. This gives you more branches lower on the tree. Resulting in: Quicker production...More fruit at a safe picking height... and more fruit over the life of your tree.

Start saving thousands of dollars and enjoying a lifetime of sweet delicious fruit. Order your persimmon trees today, while they're still available.

Amazing tree
My grandfather had a Japanese persimmon when I was young and I still remember its remakable fruit. So I ordered the Fuyu Persimmon from Fast Growing Trees and it has been amazing. The tree arrived here in Houston, in the usual excellent condintion from Fast Growing Trees. I planted it about three months ago, i.e. February, and now, the first of May, the tree is not only growing without any planting shock but has at least a half dozen fuit growing on the tree. I am delighted with this purchase and highly recommend the Fuyu Persimmon from Fast Growing Trees.

Planted my persimmons
Bought and planted 5 fuyu persimmon trees last fall. They went dormant, lost all their leaves, and I thought it was all over. Wrong. Spring came along and they exploded with leaves and height! They have all grown over a foot since planting, and some even had fruit (which we removed). They look great so far and I'm looking forward to what my deer think of them in a year or two. Not sure what my zone number is, but we are in the eastern panhandle of Florida. Madison County.

Future Persimmon
I am so excited with my Persimmon tree! I have already prepared the ground that I was gonna put it in. It looked good and healthy in its neat packaging, I found 11 baby Persimmon inside that I assume fell off the branches so I am hoping it will bear fruit next year. Summer has been hot and dry so I have been watering it religiously! I have a new sprig on one branch and hoping to see more before winter! Persimmon is one of my Mom's and my favorite fruit. Hope to be tasting it next year! Thanks!

Our tree came with buds on it, which took a couple months to branch out. These are about 4-5 inches now. It looks healthy so far. Hopefully it will produce one day in a couple yearsr or so.

Just had for 6 months ....so don't really know
I have had these persimmon trees for only about 6 months, so I really don't know how they will fare this winter. But there is one persimmon on one of the trees, and am looking forward to tasting it.

We have had the wettest year on record up till this point in OK,, so glad to see they survived that.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Fuyu Persimmon Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Emerald Green Thuja.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Emerald Green Thuja gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

Tasted this fruit in California and ate it like an apple...It was sweet and nonstringent.
larry b on Nov 2, 2015
This is a gift for my grandmother's birthday - she loves persimmons. She lives in Zone 7, which, thankfully, is compatible with this tree. It's self-pollinating and from what I've read, it doesn't seem to need lots of care once the roots are established. I'm hoping for a healthy, fruitful tree that will bring years of enjoyment to my grandma.
Christy B on Nov 1, 2015

I live in Connecticut, is it too late to plant Fuyu Persimmon tree on the ground in late June or begiining of July? Should I leave it in a pot and plant it next Spring?
Joyce80 on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in Seattle, WA, and I planted my tree in late summer, less than a year ago. It wintered well (we have mild winters here), and leafed out in the spring with new growth and actually has five or six fruits forming at this time. I have an older Ffuyu tree that works well in this climate while native persimmon never bears fruit. Bottom line: My experience says plant it now, but your climate is not the same as mine.
How does the Fuyu do in low areas that tend to collect water with heavy rains?

When is the best time to plant them in Rhode Island? Since they are not a native species, are there any diseases, insects or pests that will bother them?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is best to plant them in the early Spring or early fall. Unless you aren't experiencing scorching summer heat, then you can plant it now. They're pretty pest and disease resistant. Any organic pesticide will knock out threats and your tree won't develop a fungus unless it receives too much water.

A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Congratulations on buying Fuyu persimmon. You will not be disappointed with the fruit. It is really good. I eat the whole fruit, including the skin. I do not particularly know what type of soil or pH level they best grow in, but I can tell you that my tree and the neighbor's next door are thriving well here in Douglasville, GA. If you can google the type and pH of the soil in Douglasville, GA, that will lead you to the answer.
There is a planting kit, etc....Not sure what these add ons are as we didn't use them with our first tree. How vital are all or some? I tried clicking on the selections, however nothing came up.

Jacki G on Dec 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can still plant it in Virginia in December. Also, the planting kit comes with a tree guard (helps with mice, rabbits and other rodents) and a bag of mycorrhizal fungi which helps with root growth.

BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure, but I planted mine in early October on Long Island - about a month before the first hard frost - and it is doing very well! I would guess in VA you have a broader window of opportunity for planting. In the summer you would want to be more careful about giving it lots of water. Best of luck!

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
